The Uninvited

There aren't too many great movies opening this weekend- just the awful-looking Renee Zellwegger romcom New in Town, the alright-looking Taken (the trailer alone made me want to watch it), and the horror movie The Uninvited. Oh, The Uninvited... For those of you who don't know, this movie is based on the highest grossing Korean horror movie of all time, A Tale of Two Sisters (JangHwa, Hong Ryun). I HATE horror films. I usually watch with my eyes closed and my ears plugged, so... yeah, spending $10 to be a mute for 2 hours is not something I think is fun. But, I did watch A Tale of Two Sisters because I found intriguing the fact that SOO many people watched and loved it, and I really like the 2 actresses that play the sisters in the movie.

Um. It's a REALLY scary movie. We're talking blood and ghosts and scary noises. But, it's also a really well made, imaginative, and thoughful kind of a horror film. Which is why I have absolute no hopes for this new remake. The trailer makes it look stupid. And it hasn't been getting hot reviews either. If you really want to be scared, netflix the original A Tale of Two Sisters.

The two trailers:

A Tale of Two Sisters

The Uninvited
